You mean I should feel sad for you (and others)that you canít comprehend such a value in yuddishkeit ? Itís for me to say I do...

So here's your golden opportunity to open all our eyes to the real values of tznius by actually explaining them to us instead of just telling us these are your feelings and that this is how it should be because that's how you feel.

and men?


Also shouldn't smoke. Typically women are more in tune to these health things.

In all honesty, I really did think you were being sarcastic. I try not to joke around too much where other peoples thoughts and ideas are concerned. And I really am open to hearing your point of view.    I'd like to understand why you believe there is value in a women not going to the park.


It's not that I don't get where these thoughts come from. Or how they came to be. I just personally think we've taken things to an unhealthy level and detached it far from yiddeshkeit.

But I would like if you could explain the value of having a women not go out to the park.

Why cant woman smoke even in more liberal communities.
Maybe this will help to understand the underlying concept.
They are not allowed to smoke either?

So the city of Mahwah shouldn't give them a summons.

Wow. That is so misguided. You do know who's husband held the same way, that his wife should not be allowed to go out of the house? I'm sure you know who was born from that woman. It's a meferishe Gemara.

They can drink all they want - they can't drive anyway
